I cannot address issues with bans or access to Wikipedia. This is an issue for Wikipedia administrators, the two projects – Wikinews and Wikipedia are quite separate. Your IP address may well be banned because it is shared and someone else has used it to abuse Wikipedia.


I note that the Kerosene 454 article you cite lists a discography of record label released albums. Your own contribution – which is a conflict of interest writing about yourself – did not cite such justification to meet notability guidelines.


This is my last email response on this, please take your beef with Wikipedia to Wikipedia.

Neither Wikinews nor Wikipedia are sites where you can stick up any old random stuff.


Band adverts or hagiographies? Nope. Not notable. In the dustbin.


Thank you for notifying me I can zap your page off Wikinews. I will also block the account as single purpose.
